Re: Q from a Beginner: Best Lens for Pet/Dog Photography - D3400

Hey Calson. The Tamron looks like it could be a really good option. I’ve decided that a zoom is the way to go and so I’ve been primarily looking now at the Sigma 17-50mm and the Tamron 24-75. You’re exactly right that most of my pictures are in the 35-55 range. I think the extra range would be awesome, since sometimes I already find the 55mm slightly limiting when I’m shooting in large open areas (like outdoors).

Do you (or anyone else) have experience with the Tamron’s AF system? Is it quick/accurate? Are there any other trade offs btw the Sigma and Tamron? Are there perhaps websites that do some empiric testing between these lenses?

Sorry for my questions and thanks for your help.
